provision for the new fault finding team previously view o.p.c. w. could only say whether or not that chemical attack had taken place but as rough as the of reports even the mandate is in question after leaks from whistleblowers. you b. c w was all that stood between humanity and the terrible terrible curse of chemical weapons they did this by never taking sides they never assigned blame they came they analyzed and reported not what they thought but what they knew not who but what there was never any reason not to trust that you can't argue with pure science it was utterly impartial objective a political it was passed simple.

is highly likely that russia was responsible to the old russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted murder. it was always a technical organ where consensus prevailed and now we see that it is completely politicized with a politicized agenda from various parties we want the o.p.c. w. to get back to where it was before wasn't enough for the u.p.c. w. to present facts some wanted opinion to political opinion they wanted to give the
6:05 am
u.p.c. w. alternate power to blame the sentence and condemn nations we look forward to receiving the 1st reports in the near future it will then be for us . to the sides. to respond to the i to it's a crucial in this to siri means of identifying the pip the trade is behind these horrific attacks we cannot accept impunity for these horrible crimes other nations are putting their foot down why they are sick would you want to destroy the essence of what made the u.p.c. w. so special so trustworthy and are you doing this in the interests of humanity or for your own personal ambitions as we know this whole attribution mechanism adventure was started to put pressure on damascus a number of these missions investigations including the last one which made headlines the incident in duma on the 7th of april 28th have convinced us that we
6:06 am
cannot take the special missions conclusions at face value we also refused to fund in. this key and refused to grant access to a war. confidential documents provided to the office w. and a security council and therefore reject any reports issued by this team i reiterate india's principle. to the attributes of mechanism due to the manner in bits because i didn't disregard of india's concerns on the substance as follows the process they couldn't have picked a worse time to give the u.p.c. w.-a judges not lest multiple o.p.c. w. insiders have sparked a huge scandal alleging that the organization cherry picked the facts on the alleged chemical attack in syria last year to suit a political agenda. after passing through the

ceiling in impacting the floor of the lower speed the cylinder continued in altered trajectory until reaching the position in which it was found the 1st whistle blower said that the gas canisters used in the attack were likely placed at the scene. of the dropped from the air. observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a high probability that both cylinders were money placed at those $2.00 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft u.p.c. w excuse that self by saying that it took into account other reports not just his then the 2nd whistle blower struck a veteran who was on the ground in syria connecting some poles and he went one better or worse the squad big political pressure secrecy and potential fraud most of the duma team failed to see reports on the instant interim report and
6:08 am
the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent all he wanted was a little transparency to be able to speak at this conference where the vote is taking place to set things straight all he got was a letter from management telling him no i would like to. find the mission. at the end of the day every country in that room is going to have to decide for themselves whether to let the u.p.c. w. play god to blame accuse and condemn nations and governments to be the excuse that spock's was to give that power to new organization which doesn't even have the trust of its own employees. well former british ambassador to syria peter
6:09 am
ford believes it's dangerous to give the o.p.c. w. blame giving powers because the organization has become highly politicized. and then they got the lesson of the crisis with competence in really the c.w. which you not even capable of mounting a reliable investigation of whether a chemical attack occurred in grenada after all let's go to a fine response with the conventional organize vision that we have dominated by one country a you add them by the west generally is not capable of liberating an object. in any investigation within 3 days with the alleged incident the us france and the u.k. had bombed syria without waiting for any investigation they needed the help of
6:10 am
you to justify the fact. that illegal bombing of syria so it goes on all the latest watching the hawks episode is a crawl space you can watch it online and you will see tyrrel ventura discussing the latest whistleblower leak with r.t. america correspondent ritual blevins. now the timing of this release is really notable because this comes as the o.p.c. w. is having their annual conference well the western officials that have spoken out according to reports have actually placed the blame here on russia and syria once again and they have said that this is an attempt by the governments from both countries to sort of muddy the waters where this is concerned and they claim that that's because russia and syria have been asking questions about these claims of reported chemical attack from the very beginning we also have to remember here that of course because the u.s. the u.k. and france were the ones to launch air strikes against syria just one week after reports of this attack they have
6:11 am
a lot to lose here so they're not going to be nearly as quick to admit that they were wrong where all of this is concerned and so the something to keep in mind especially because it puts them in a bad light if they come out and they suddenly say wait a 2nd there may be problems with this resource you know how dare anyone ever questions about what happens we just have to take their word for. a let's move the program. for their health transparency protesters have gathered in the french city of ruin thanks actually to a devastating fire and goals to come traversal chemical factory in the area you go she's almost went to see the situation 1st tell. we're walking with a crowd of well it looks like a 100 maybe a bit more i can't really see all the way to the end of this call them through on and indeed there are concerned people from all really the whole society spectrum is here all of them are indeed demanding transparency from the government and from
6:12 am
lubrizol the company the chemical plant that while of that released all these chemicals into into the atmosphere some 2 months ago. many of the locals complained about the burning sensation in their throat for instance or about feeling nauseous after the release of the chemicals just simply because of breathing the contaminated and they're accusing the government of failing to release the air samples they which were taken right after the fire and the government's position on lubrizol is position has been that while there was no immediate health threat that all of those effects would pass and that there was no environmental impact but people here are not buying this i found this in my garden and every day i can find it it comes from the lubrizol. fire and so my
6:13 am
children's doesn't go in the garden so that's that's why i am i am very very angry and i created this this exhibit to show that we are boring about people who we money and how our life are becoming like that. removed through the surgery to switch sides we want the truth to be revealed about what happened in the lubrizol accident because now everyone's just passing the buck no one wants to take responsibility and the truth about the accident has not been established just today we should have health monitoring which we currently don't we. denied more extensive blood tests we expect resignations over this year people are concerned about their health but it wasn't just about that local businesses local farmers suffered immensely for instance some 1800 farmers who were banned from
6:14 am
harvesting their own crop by the french government because all of that well because because of the fears of contamination so you can clearly see why people here are demanding more transparency and they want an in-depth look as to what's going on that lubrizol plant. a critically acclaimed movie about london gang warfare has seen its violent themes spill out beyond the screens at british cinemas one leading chains now bound showings of blue story but that's led to the company being branded institutionally racist it centers on the lives of 2 young friends who become embroiled in gang life. from death row where you will be writing with my recommendation i remember the. moment sometimes you just leave the room but you will britain's 3rd biggest change view cinemas responded after a brawl last friday at one of its venues in the city of birmingham several police
6:15 am
officers were on the run 100 youths armed with machetes causing trouble. well at least 2 major cinema chains recorded dozens of what they describe as significant incidents since blue story hit cinemas while. polled the movie completely 2 other chains say they are in security of screenings instead view cinemas took this step to drop the full because it's been used witness 25 incidents within one day of its release view sees its decision came after curfew consideration and was taken to ensure the safety of its staff and customers it denies the move is a race issue however that said it's nonetheless facing claims of suppressing black art while the movie's director insists his is not about love it's a bottle of excuse me not violence conservative radio host dave perkins london
6:16 am
social activist lead just they've been sharing their reactions with us. away incident so all sorts of fail right across a welt almost every day those films to no end up getting banned. culture is under constant attack grime music now they say now black failings whatever we're doing it even in the areas where we have fabulous they successful we still don't a scape bit to criticism why don't we just assess all leisure and to tame and activities in britain in relation to the hot coals because football at least people aged then movies in a cinema we can think of thousands of types of activities that take place where serious crime and criminality is much more in excess than we witness over this. so let's treat everybody on an equal playing field i don't think it's possible for the movie to cause violence i think it's possible for the movie to set the foundation
6:17 am
for violence and then predict with some level of confidence or even certainty that violence is going to happen so i want to clarify it like that in a since in the sense that all movies do when they're about a cultural feature it glorifies the business of being in a gang that doesn't mean a glorifies the violence per se but people involved in gangs do have a considerably higher rate of violence than people who aren't involved in gangs and here's the thing when you draw them all to a place at night a whole bunch of young people together with a very high degree of involvement of one form or another in gangs that's why they come to see the movie because it glorifies the culture that they're in the likelihood of something terrible happening is very high on the way it's being called the important new chapter in the trump impeachment process but is it really r t reports after the break. you
6:18 am
know world of big. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. much of the powerful and. then you have to recall and what we have done is to try and identify something happening in the brain where the explosion of the ripples. of consciousness. join me every thursday
6:19 am
on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. 90 minutes into the program welcome to the trump impeachment investigation is entering a new phase moving a step closer to votes on whether to impeach the president the u.s. house judiciary committee will hold its 1st hearing on whether it's invited along he said on twitter that he'd love current and former colleagues including secretary of state my pump to testify to whilce calling it all a democrat either way it's getting the washington press pack. president's own pentagon and his own security staff detailed a plot to extort foreign help to cheat in the reelection campaign the worst day
6:20 am
with the most damning evidence for president trump in this impeachment inquiry that was driven by the president's personal political error and his interests. well as the hearing heads to the next stage former u.s. congressman ron paul thinks that what's happening right now is not proving paul is there for either the republicans or democrats i've always said that when you want to tell the truth in an amp hour it becomes treasonous and i think a lot of what we're doing our government is doing right now it's all fake as lot of the lying and innuendos trying to figure out what's going on but i don't think it's been very positive for republicans or democrats and i think so unnecessary i think it's actually what they're doing is they're distracting from some of the problems i think they should be dealing with asked most people now understand exactly what's going on and i think these hearings were a benefit to trump because i think more people in this country are looking at the
6:21 am
way that democrats handled these hearings and say hey this isn't quite fair this isn't right so i think that's why there's less enthusiasm for impeachment now than it was a week or so ago the impeachment could be passed and then is going to be squelched in the senate and right now people are sick and tired of this so i think the democrats are in a bind on what to do about this now in fact the sentiment right now seems to be shifting away from the idea. that the impeachment is going to come and then there's going to be a long trial in the senate you know i think foreign policy is important and in the past i've talked about ukraine i don't like the idea that we were involved with. ukraine a couple years ago so i don't think we deal with those kind of problems and this is a lot of grandstanding and political shit cannery going on between the 2 political parties and i wish both parties would get together and start talking about a more sensible foreign policy and i course support the position that we should be
6:22 am
a lot less involved in the internal affairs or border disputes anywhere around the world. the impeachment saga kicked off in september when a whistleblower allege president trump abused his office during a phone call with the ukrainian leader it centered on mr trump's efforts to get the authorities in kiev to investigate the sala former democrat vice president joe biden who held to a senior role out of ukrainian gas company its alleged pressured ukraine to investigate his political rivals by threatening to withhold u.s. military aid the american leader to use any wrong doing. trying to break the 2 party stranglehold the elections in new york could be applied to get a whole lot further for the smaller so-called 3rd parties a state powell gave the green lights on monday to increase the vote threshold making it much more difficult to appear on future ballots there well
6:23 am
a public campaign finance commission agreed to raise the minimum qualifying votes required from 500-021-3000 extension 0 or at least 2 percent of the overall vote commission members defended the adjustment explaining of the current limit or set a 1936 when there were fewer voters know this higher threshold the majority of minor parties they're not happy the public financing commission was created to improve our democracy not restrict it and the proposal must respect the constitutional rights of fusion voting on the role of minor parties in new york to mock received by setting the bar so high for entry the commission willfully ignored this is reduced to 3rd party success because in reality the bosses don't want competition. the u.s. has long operated a 2 party system with the democrats and republicans as the major political powers and when it comes to election time minor parties get limited resources and very limited success up the polls well it doesn't mean they can't affect the final
6:24 am
outcome they can often be seen to split the vote for wavering supporters of other parties of course such as in the 2016 u.s. presidential election in which many accuse the 3rd parties of delivering donald trump to the white house we heard from one of the leaders of the libertarian party's national committee who thinks the state pummels the session is an example of silencing challengers. what we see right now is just an aspect of an ongoing war to silence all political dissenting parties and every state you see which ever parties are dominant trying to silence all possible challengers it's going to hammer them i mean we're talking about something that's going to restrict access it's going to hurt donations it's going to really prevent ideas from spreading but it's going to hurt the american people more and hurt the people of new york more because the things that could improve their lives ranging from ending the drug war making home schooling easier getting the government entirely out of
6:25 am
education cutting taxes increasing job opportunities all those great things that are offered by small parties like the libertarian party are now essentially off the table when you have 2 major parties who are borderline colluding on everything sort of reducing the number of political options and restricting things to 'd things that people even want that's where we get into a huge problem so that's going to be of course going to hurt most of all the parties but it's going to be even worse hurt the american people. ok just before we go to break i want to bring you to texas again in the u.s. where a raging fire at a chemical plant and it's very much ongoing at least 3 workers now reportedly being hospitalized following a blast which happened at a run 1 am local time it's about 4 coming up to 4 30 in the morning there and so it's been raging for hours and windows were shattered homes buildings several miles away as well there there's no word yet on what caused the incident we do know what
